Naturally sweetened and super easy to make, these healthy banana waffles will make you look forward for breakfast!
I love starting my day with a good breakfast. And my idea of a good one is something that’s filling, easy-to-make, and refined sugar-free.
If you have the same criteria as I do then you’ll enjoy this healthy waffle recipe!
What you need to make these easy healthy banana waffles
You’ll only need a few basic ingredients to make these waffles:
- very ripe bananas
- eggs or liquid eggs
- ground cinnamon
- ground nutmeg
- baking powder
- almond flour
- vanilla extract (optional)
How to make these healthy banana waffles
Making these healthy banana waffles from scratch is so easy! Here’s the step-by-step process:
Step 1. Mashed the bananas.
These waffles do not use any form of sweetener so it’s very important to use overripe bananas for these. Here’s a good article talking about choosing the right bananas for your banana-based recipe.
Step 2. Add the other ingredients.
This recipe isn’t just tasty and healthy, it’s also time-saving! You only need one bowl for this.
On the same bowl, add the remaining ingredients – eggs, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, baking powder, almond flour (you can substitute it with regular flour), and vanilla extract (optional).
Step 3. Cook the batter.
Spoon about three to four teaspoons of the batter on a pre-heated waffle maker (I use a mini waffle maker). Wait for the cook indicator before removing them.
If you’re using it for making pancakes, spoon about three to four tablespoons on a pre-heated pan. Flip once you start seeing holes/bubbles.
These waffles are best eaten with butter and/or pancake/waffle syrup (I only use a small amount as this is already sweet enough for me).

Healthy Banana Waffle Recipe
- 2 large very ripe bananas
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 2/3 cup almond flour
- 1/2 tsp vanilla/almond extract Optional
- In one bowl, mash the bananas. You may leave chunks of it if you like having bits of bananas in your waffle.
- On the same bowl, add the remaining ingredients – eggs, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, baking powder, almond flour, and vanilla/almond extract (if using). Mix well.
If you're using this batter for making pancakes:
- Pre-heat your pan over medium heat. Add about 1 to 2 tsp of oil or butter if using a conventional pan.
- Once the pan is hot enough, scoop about 3-4 tbsp of the batter. Flip the pancake once you start seeing bubbles/holes. Serve warm.
If you're using this batter for making waffles:
- Lightly greased your waffle maker and pre-heat it. Each waffle maker is different so make sure to read your waffle's manual for specific instructions on how to do it.
- Once the waffle maker is hot enough, scoop about 2-3 tsp of the mixture (this depends on how big your waffle maker is). Serve warm.
